Last week it was revealed that Hugh Jackman and Rooney Mara had taken the lead roles in Collateral Beauty, with Alfonso Gomez-Rejon (Me and Earl and the Dying Girl) set to direct. Now another actor is in talks for the movie, as Jason Segel is circling the film, according to Variety.
Collateral Beauty is ‘about a New York advertising executive (Jackman) who experiences a deep personal tragedy. When his colleagues devise an unconventional plan to break him out of his depression, the plan works, but not in a way that anyone imagined’.
It’s not clear who Segel will play, but it wouldn’t be surprising if he’s one of the colleagues trying to help Jackman out.
Allan Loeb wrote the script, with plans to shoot the movie this autumn.
